This is something that I've wanted to get for a while (basically ever since I learned that they were a thing), but kept telling myself that I didn't need it. That it was just a luxury and wouldn't really make much of a difference with my bookbinding.

I was very wrong. It is such a huge help, both with making sure my holes are properly aligned and making me punch holes more quickly. I'm kicking myself for not buying it sooner and definitely recommend other bookbinding who are on the fence purchase it as well.

I did have to punch a few holes clear before use but other than that it does the job and easy to use.

Brilliant tool and very well made. Had it customised with black base and yellow guide and it's better than I could've hoped for. It's already speeding up my bookbinding process. Stephan was utterly amazing and helpful too. Perfect service and product 👍

This hole punching tool helps to prepare all of the signatures of a book you are working on in an identical manner. With the guidance of this cradle, the holes for sewing will be in the exact same location as relating to the top and bottom of the sheet or section.

This version of the tool has the numbers of the holes printed in a contrasting color of plastic (see the images.)
Punching tool Type B features a chiseled design of the cradle. For a more classic version please check Type A of the tool.

220 mm tool with 10 mm spacing has 21 holes. 310 mm tool with 10 mm spacing has 30 holes. Please also check other options or make a customized order for other sizes and configurations.

The "Puzzle" versions of the tool are made in pieces that you'll have to assemble on your own (check the photo above):
400 mm, 500 mm, and 600 mm.
That allows to save on the shipping and keep the final price of the product lower.
If you want us to preassemble them, please make a customized order. The final price will be higher by approximately 20 euros.

The holes are numbered for ease of use and replication on different projects.

An awl isn't included.
